One of the big players in European waste disposal opts for know-how from Styria: with the biogas plant for the German SARIA-Rethmann Group, it has once again been possible for Enbasys GmbH – a daughter company of the BDI – BioEnergy International AG – to seal a million-euro contract. The decisive advantage of the plant is its high flexibility and efficiency in utilising difficult industrial waste. Security of supply is guaranteed. The biogas plant will start operating at the end of 2011, producing annually a total of 6.3 Million Nm³ biogas from around 87,000 tonnes of the most diverse sorts of waste – from organic waste to sludge or residue from grease recovery. That represents green electricity for around 6,000 households.

Experience, competence, and know-how have once again prevailed: the Austrian Enbasys GmbH, a daughter company of BDI – BioEnergy International AG, has received a contract worth more than €4 million from one of the largest disposal enterprises in Europe. With the construction of a biogas plant for utilising industrial waste for the German SARIA-Rethmann Group, BDI and Enbasys show continuing success in the development of pioneering “waste to energy” concepts for industrial users.

The biogas plant, which is being built at SARIA in Marl (Germany) and commences operations at the end of the year, will produce annually a total of 6.3 Million Nm³ biogas from around 87,000 tonnes of the most diverse sorts of waste – from organic waste to sludge or residue from grease recovery. That represents green electricity for around 6,000 households, according to the EU average.

„This is an important, environmentally friendly, and sensible contribution to the production of renewable energy from locally available, biogenic raw materials, which are attainable throughout the year and round the clock, thus assuring security of supply”, stressed Wilhelm Hammer, chairman of the board at BDI – BioEnergy International AG.

The German enterprise has already relied on the know-how of BDI for some time: “SARIA has several multi-feedstock biodiesel plants from BDI, which are outstanding in their extremely high flexibility and efficiency in the utilisation of wide-ranging side products and waste materials from the oil and fat industry”, explained Hammer.

With the unique Enbasys biogas technology, these advantages are now also offered to the demanding industrial users of biogas plants: competence in constructing special plants, high security of function, flexibility also with difficult raw materials, and no unproductive periods of inactivity. “Our strengths were also decisive for this client”, emphasised the chairman of the board of BDI – BioEnergy International AG.
